Shotgun Cleaning Made Easy!
Keeping your shotgun clean is very important to having a good shot. Like any other tools that you use when they are clean they operate a whole lot better and safer. Some of the reasons to keep your gun clean are after shooting there is always a residue that is left behind from the shells. The residue comes from the powder, wad and bullets. Then there is moisture from the weather. All is a recipe for malfuntions.
If you do regular maintenance and cleaning it gives your gun the ability to last for years. I have a shotgun that I use for over 45 years and it still is doing a great job.
Simply cleaning and storing properly can preserve your gun for a long time. Don’t forget to properly look after the outside of the gun also. Waxing the stock can keep the wood in good condition as well.
Learning how to take your gun apart, clean it and put it back together also helps you learn how your gun works. You will find that to much lubricant can create a build up of dirt so you have to be careful to make sure that this condition does not happen to your firearm.
